Yes, my friend you are right............(y)

Mary Jenkins Langston, who cooked for Elvis Presley for 14 years, serving him meatloaf, banana icebox pie and his beloved fried peanut butter and banana sandwiches, I am sure she must have made fresh biscuits. (y)

Thanks so much. (y)

They probably meant the canned bisquits. I'm guessing but only because I know they were popular with other family members.
